Be Passionate in everything you do
Passion is key ingredient for achieving great work. We will eventually abandon what doesn’t excite us or keep us engaged for something that fulfills our deepest sense of purpose. Coaches are on the lookout for those who exhibit a genuine excitement for what they do. Passion means investing the maximum amount of effort to get a job done because we care about the outcome. Part of finding passion at the park is working in a way that utilizes your strengths. Discover your unique gifts and then ensure the work you are doing allows you to use them. One of my favorite quotes is this one from Howard Thurman: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it." Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
Don't waste the talent that the good Lord has blessed you with. Work hard to refine your game and give yourself every oppertunity to succeed. You have to outwork everybody to secure your spot ,and then you have to continue to work harder to keep it.
Good work ethic isn’t just about putting in the hours, but seeing the full picture of what hard work really means: being on time, prepared, coachable, positive and passionate which will validate your play on the field.
You were made to achieve greatness on the field and off - have fun!
